From 1 April 2015, the Care Act will require healthcare professionals to work more closely with local authorities to identify and support carers better.
Our background guidance and practical tips can help you take simple steps to implement the legislation in your workplace.
Carers Week 2015 takes place from 8-14 June, and this year’s theme is ‘building carer friendly communities’. Can you use this as an opportunity to reach out to hidden carers in your area?
